limited housing supply away from our city's residents. the legislate we have in front of us clarifies that corporate entitis can not skirt our laws, but signing long-term leases for planned occupancies of less than 30 days. that also strengthens the enforcement process by creating an administrative review hearing for the department of building inspection to reevaluate complaints and giving residents the ability to seek legal recourse through the assistance of non-profit organizations. i want to thank all of the stakeholders that my office has been working with starting with advocates for the tenants community, the san francisco tenants union, as well as representatives of tenants in the golden gateway, as well as in other neighborhoods. i know also there have been neighborhood associations that have v addressed my office and reached out to me. i want to thank the affordable housing alliance in addition, to the san francisco tenants union for their support. i should also mention that i have been convening a grouch stakeholders to address a separate set of challenges, associat

housing here in the city. because there was the 10th and market project, i know started out as for-sale units and asked for a conditional use to be considered as rental units. you know, 55 laguna, the project i worked foreperson seven and a halfs and we sat with open houses and debated whether that should be 100% affordable low-income senior housing or not or mixed-use housing? recently those project sponsors came back and wanted to maybe sacrifice some of the middle-income affordable housing for the financing of the senior housing? so that is -- these debates are endless. so i think again it would help to have just, you know, more holistic approach to this whole thing. i don't think we have the appropriate analyses sometimes or least i didn't feel that way when we were approving project-by-project things. and i think there is always room to include more information. and so i don't think the conversation ends today. >> thank you, supervisor campos? >> thank you, you know, i have been on this board for four years now. and one of the things that i am very proud of is that when it com
